21 Success Secrets Of Self-Made Millionaires

The main reason that most people never achieve wealth is because it never occurs to them that they can. But like Jim Rohn said, “If you want to be wealthy, study wealth”

In 21 Success Secrets Of Self-Made Millionaires {<Free Copy}, Brian Tracy shares what self-made millionaires think and do because everything is learnable.

Secret#1 – Dream Big Dreams.

Allow yourself to dream. Imagine the possibilities for your life and remember that nothing great has ever been achieved if not first a dream.

Secret#2 – Develop A Clear Sense Of Direction

As Earl Nightingale said in The Strangest Secret {<Free Audiobook}, “We become what we think about.” And at the top of Napoleon Hill’s list of success principles in Think And Grow Rich {<Free Copy} is having a definite major purpose. By putting your dreams into a clearly defined written down goal you develop a sense of direction and set in motion the law of attraction.

Secret#3 – See Yourself As Self-Employed

Take responsibility for your life. Become the president of your own personal service corporation – no matter who signs your paycheck.

Secret#4 – Do What You Love To Do

Figure out what you enjoy doing the most, have the natural talent for, and then wholeheartedly master it. Find that one thing that you love to do, and do it well, and you’ll never work another day in your life.

Secret#5 – Commit To Excellence

Resolve to be the very best at what you do. Commit to excellence and join the top 10% in your field.

Secret#6 – Work Harder And Longer

Develop a reputation for being the hardest working person in your career. When your at work – work. Thanks to The Science Of Getting Rich  {<Free Copy} by Wallace D. Wattles I always work efficiently. You don’t always have to work at top speed – just plan ahead, organize, and do things efficiently.

Secret#7 – Dedicate Yourself To Lifelong Learning

You have the potential to achieve all of your goals. When I used The Dickens Pattern on myself, my new cool became reading, learning, and growing as a human being. Turn your car into a university on wheels.

Secret#8 – Pay Yourself First

Save and invest at least 10% of everything you earn. Study investments and don’t waste commissions and fees on money managers who rarely earn anything for their clients. I suggest at least 10% in physical precious metals in a home safe, and buy a stock index fund during the next downturn in the stock market. Then don’t check the markets regularly by thinking long term. Study cycles and compound interest. And real estate is always great if you do due diligence.

Secret#9 – Learn Every Detail Of Your Business

Become an expert in your chosen field by learning every important detail about it. Then continually find ways to improve upon it and you. As I like to call it, chip away at the stone.

Secret#10 – Dedicate Yourself To Serving Others

Rewards are always in proportion to our service to others. By going the extra mile, the law of returns will insure that you will always get paid extra, one way or another. So look for new and better ways to serve your customers and your company.

Secret#11 – Be Absolutely Honest With Yourself & Others

Successful businesses are built on trust. Be true to the very best that is within you. Set high standards then keep raising the bar.

Secret#12 – Determine Your Highest Priorities & Concentrate On Them Single-Mindedly

Set daily priorities then concentrate on accomplishing those things that make the biggest difference. Develop the habit of working on one important task until it’s completed. Always finish what you start.

Secret#13 – Develop A Reputation For Speed & Dependability

Everyone today is in a hurry. I’m in the habit of saying to myself, “Just do it now.” Instead of thinking about and putting things off…just do it now. Don’t waste time on the non-essentials. And develop an eye for quality.

Secret#14 – Be Prepared To Climb From Peak To Peak

Everything is cyclical, so think long term and watch for trends as they develop. Then go with the flow.

Secret#15 – Practice Self-Discipline In All Things

The biggest difference between people is the ability to take action. Most people lie on the couch watching TV, but the 2 – 5% who are successful welcome the disciplines  by taking action whether they feel like it or not. You should check out The Lords Of Self-Discipline.

Secret#16 – Unlock Your Inborn Creativity

You’re a potential genius with the unlimited creative capacity to develop ideas, inventions, and artwork. Harness the God-like gift of your imagination and the world is yours.

Secret#17 – Get Around The Right People

Listen to Jim Rohn’s free audio Walk Away From the 97%. Need I say more?

Secret#18 – Take Excellent Care Of Your Physical Health

You should check out my Top 10 Health Tips  and How To Break Bad Habits.

Secret#19 – Be Decisive & Action Oriented

Think carefully then decide quickly after all the facts are in. And take action to see your decision through, yet remain flexible enough if new info comes in.

Secret#20 – Never Allow Failure To Be An Option

As Frank Herbert said, “Fear is the mind-killer.” The fear of failure causes the very thing that is feared by paralyzing you so that you don’t even try. Break on through to the other side of fear – and you’ll find success.

Secret#21 – Pass The Persistence Test

Persistence is having An Iron Will {<Free Copy} by Orison Swett Marden.   Stay determined and you’ll overcome all the roadblocks along the road to success.

Remember that anything anyone else can do, you can do at least equally as well if you determine it to be so. And if you learn how they did it.

All the best, – Herb.
